The first of Green Park’s 14 plots to be developed, 100 Longwater is intended to serve as a model for future development in the business park. The landscape design by PLACE integrated the building with the adjacent landscape of Longwater, its associated waterside vegetation and habitats. At the building’s main entrance PLACE created a crisp, sheltered and welcoming environment, with the decked car park softened by semi-mature tree planting and screened from view by bunding and planting. There is a seamless interface between the sleek office building and the external environment, which brings staff and visitors into direct contact with the wildlife-rich landscape.
